Re: bugs with artists

When one enters the name 'Tintoretto' in the search engine under artists' names, he doesn't appear.  Tintoretto can be found if one enters 'Jacopo' !  I have tried to redefine the edit page for the artist (Jacopo Robusti - named as Tintoretto) but it cannot locate under his known name.

Re: bugs with artists

An entry for Sassetta already exists under Giovanni di Stafano (Sassetta).  The entry for Sassetta will be removed as this is a duplicate.

This artist was perhaps difficult to trace, as with many early Italian artists, when they are known or adopted under different titles.

Re: bugs with artists

To Schroetterjoseph:

Could you please check all possible spellings for a 'new' artist BEFORE YOU CREATE A PAGE as I have found that you have duplicated some names that already exist on the website.  Gerard ter Borch is already there as Gerard Terborch.  I have deleted the previous entry (Gerard Terborch) as there were only 3 under that heading that I created in early September.  I have now substituted the entry with another new artist, James Ogilvy Reid.

There were previous examples of entries you had created that already exist ( Lorenzo Monaco).

This website will look ridiculous if people who have access to edit  duplicate entries.  I spend time trying to remove duplications to make the website more professional.  It would also be useful if you could insert more information such as dates, accurate or around, ownership of works and dimensions if possible, much of which can be obtained from the relevant sources, such as museums.

Welcome and thanks.

For Josselin:

I'm afraid I don't know how to do accents (French).  I've tried but still cannot work out.  If you want, you may make the accents to some of my entries for the French titles as it would look so much better (example - today's entry title Hebe (Emile Carolus-Duran).  Thanks.

Fixed.

I think there should be a feature to include special characters above the textbox, we could therefore insert them in the text just by clicking on them.

Re: bugs with artists

Thanks Josselin.  That would be a good idea.  Perhaps Chris could work on this (mainly French and German)?

Re: bugs with artists

I have taken the steps of filling in details that were missing for the works of JEAN HEY (Master of Moulins) and created a new 'museum' entry for the Cathedral de Moulins, since there were 7 entries under this title (previously shown as unknown).

Re: bugs with artists

Hi Josselin

I have created a new artist - Adriean van der Werff for your information.

Not sure where I should place this message!

I am going thru the National Gallery catalogue.

Re: bugs with artists

@to all,

Here is a list of "empty" artists, they do not have any artwork connected to them. It would be a good thing to clean it, either by editing these void entries and putting someone else, or by linking artworks to their page.

I will edit this page as you clean it - and add new entries. There are still a lot of other empty artists in the database. Just post here by whom you have replaced them.

Re: bugs with artists

This artist was created from an entry previously listed above:
Giandomenico Tiepolo: http://www.the-athenaeum.org/people/detail.php?ID=2541

Re: bugs with artists

Not sure why artist entries were created if no works attached to them.

I suggest that when a new artist is 'discovered' we replace one of the above entries.  I have a lot of new artists to enter so I will start to replace these.  If, at a later date, there is a work to connect to the former name then a new artist entry can be created.

This will 'clean' the records.

I don't know either. I found hundreds of them.

I have replaced the first entry in this list with a new entry ' Unknown - German School'.

Re: bugs with artists

@Graham,
I think you should add the century for the "unknown artists" you created because pictures are copyrighted when its creator doesn't have dates. For example: "Spanish School 17th century", etc.
Josselin

Re: bugs with artists

Yes, I noticed that.  I try to give a circa date(s) to avoid the copyright.  Will see about it tomorrow.  Have also replaced Edwin Alexander (?) with Unknown Spanish School:

Josselin,  thanks for this information.

I have replaced all the previous 'empty' artists with Spanish/French/British Schools - Unknown (under centuries as you suggested)  examples are:

Re: bugs with artists

Re: bugs with artists

This empty artist has been replaced by Jan van de Cappelle:

http://www.the-athenaeum.org/people/detail.php?ID=3038

Re: bugs with artists

Josselin,

I assume all these have been replaced?  But when I open a record the artist is still shown with nil entries.  However, the system does not allow me to replace with another artist.  Furthermore, the index does not include the original artist.

Re: bugs with artists

No no, these entries need replacement. I don't see why you cannot edit them.

Re: bugs with artists

I think I know what happened.  I tried to replace with 'Netherlands School 16th Century'  but it didn't recognise 'Netherlands' as late as 16th century!  I was able to open as Dutch School etc!  The 'Netherlands-era artists' were earlier.

I'll try again when I have a new artist.

Re: bugs with artists

The system doesn't seem to recognise 'Netherlands School' but it does with Dutch School etc.  I have replaced the empty with the following work:
